    What did you use for a sealant? Looks nice, but I'd like to see it in some sunlight.

    Water spots are a pain.. It wont scratch if the towel is completely free of debris.. I usually wet the towel first when wring it out as much as possible by twisting it into a roll then fold the roll and twist it again. Wipe then wring, wipe then wring. Open your hatch and wipe out the channel, open your doors and wipe out the jam, pillers, and tread plate. Dry your hinges too. A nice shot of graphite(sp) on the pins and spring loaded door stops. Little shot of lythium on the dome light switch. Then wipe off all the excess lube. Open the hood wipe out the channels lube the hinges as well. Black magic ALL the rubber door, roof, and hatch gaskets. I also use black magic for nearly everything inside, rubber, vynil, and plastic, even the cluster face crystal. Don't do the steering wheel tho.. Everyone has a different technique this is mine..
